    So I installed a dash cam this weekend. Ran wires front to back. Now I can flip the switch and turn em on, but it no longer notices the door is open. Wtf. Any ideas?

    I've had this issue for a while now, but its intermittent. Most of the time, only one bulb will light up even thought I've tested it in another car and it works fine. Hopefully someone has a fix

    Did not mess with wires but did run it along the headliner past rear door. I'm thinking I need to drop the friggin headliner

    replace it with whiteboard, or maybe chalkboard paint, so the kids can have a fun in-car activity!

    What happens when it's in the on position? Who needs the lights on when you open the doors? I always turn that shit off.

    There is the wire that feeds to the door to light the circuit when the door is open. I'd check there first to see if you cut into one of those wires. What did you wire the camera into? Mess with any grounds?
